Objective. To conduct a systematic review of workplace stress management intervention
studies that have incorporated process evaluation.
Data Source. Electronic databases such as PsycINFO and MEDline were searched.
Study Inclusion Criteria. The inclusion criteria included interventions published in the
English language that were focused on either individual- or organizational-level stress
management interventions at the workplace, with an outcome evaluation.
Data Extraction. Each article was coded on key process-relevant variables, including
context, recruitment, reach, dose delivered, dose received, fidelity, implementation, and
participant’s attitudes toward the intervention. Studies that reported on at least one of these
process variables were also coded on the following study characteristics: participants, setting,
evaluation design, intervention content, intervention format, and study outcomes.
Data Synthesis. Statistical Package for the Social Science was used to analyze the data with
descriptive statistics.
